City of London School for Girls joins AEGIS

By Aegis UK June 15, 2020

We are delighted to welcome City of London School for Girls as an AEGIS school member, demonstrating the school’s commitment to the safe guardianship and hosting of international students.

City of London School for Girls is a non-denominational, independent day school for girls aged 7 to 18, based in the heart of the Barbican. The School was established by the Corporation of the City of London with money from a bequest from William Ward of Brixton to provide education for girls that “would correspond, as near as may be, to the City of London School”. The school opened in Carmelite Street in 1894 and moved to the current premises in the Barbican in 1969.

“Our aim at City is to empower young women, champion future thinkers and celebrate the power of difference.”

The City of London School for Girls is owned by the City of London Corporation. We fully support the City’s theme “The City Together; a Vision for a World Class City” which…
  • Is competitive and promotes opportunity,
  • Supports our communities,
  • Protects, promotes and enhances our environment,
  • Is vibrant and culturally rich,
  • Is safer and stronger.
“Pupils’ attitudes to learning are excellent: a love of learning is apparent throughout the school. Pupils engage with their studies well beyond what is required of them. They give of their best, whether working independently or in collaboration with others. The extent of pupils’ participation and their individual and team successes make a major contribution to their educational experience, helping to create young women who can face the challenges of a fast-changing, wider world.” ISI Report

We welcome all schools, colleges and universities to join AEGIS and show their commitment to the safe guardianship of international students. For further details please visit https://aegisuk.net/schools-colleges/ or contact the AEGIS team via info@aegisuk.net
